The Flow

Like the men's memory is not a summation; it is a chaos of vague possibilities. This is a story about me falling asleep on the road. In the first scene, I fell asleep after many turns. Because it was raining before I fell asleep, my dream started with being submerged in the car. Then come a window scene in my memory, when the wind blowing, oranges and table get weightless. The orange turned into a star, and I followed the orange down to the bottom of the ocean, this clip simulates the feeling of weightlessness and vertigo when riding in a car. Finally, I woke up. Turns out it was all just me falling asleep in the car while eating an orange.

Director Statement

3D is a very practical tool for making realistic arts, but I personally love art that has a warmth to it, and such art usually includes physical touches and imperfect images. I am also an illustrator, one of my favorite material is ink whichI I always use to draw heavy outlines. And I also obsessed with the power of the nature, trees, and reshaping our concepts of self. I develop a new way of building on my experience, by combining 2D&3D together and create imperfect 3D.
